Produced by On Being Studios, each episode of Poetry Unbound features a single poem read aloud by host and poet Pádraig Ó Tuama. With his gentle Irish lilt, Ó Tuama invites listeners to slow down, take a deep breath, and let the words of the poem wash over them.

As the poem is read, Ó Tuama provides context and insights, sharing his own thoughts and interpretations of the work. He explores the layers of meaning in the poem, the imagery and metaphors, and the emotions that it evokes. He also draws on his own experiences and stories, connecting the poem to the wider world and to our shared human experience.

Poetry Unbound features a diverse range of poets and poems, from contemporary voices to classic works. Some episodes focus on a single poem, while others explore a theme or idea through a series of poems.
